The legal quotes from the Waukesha based District 2 Court of Appeals make this worth reading.
"Whether government employees, another public official, a lobbyist, the CEO or employees of a corporation, the president or members of a union, or other individuals supporting or opposing a particular interest, awareness of who is attempting to influence public policy is of significant interest to the public," the court wrote.
"Public awareness of 'who' is attempting to influence public policy is essential for effective oversight of our government," he wrote. "For example, if a person or group of persons who has played a significant role in an elected official's election — by way of campaign contributions or other support — contacts a lawmaker in favor of or opposed to proposed legislation, knowledge of that information is in the public interest; perhaps even more so if the person or group also stands to benefit from or is at risk of being harmed by the legislation. Disclosure of information identifying the sender may assist in revealing such a connection."
